Enoven Flatbeds and Stakebeds - Lots of Options


 

The flatbed is a very popular product. Its main job is to take things from one point to another. A Stakebed is a flatbed with some removable or permanent gates of various heights (40″ most common) to carry taller cargo and have it remain on the bed. All Flatbeds and Stakebeds typically come with a standard square headboard to protect the cab from damage.

There are many options available for the Flatbed and Stakebed such as a liftgate to help get heavy items on and off the bed, under bed tool boxes, HD trailer hitch and wiring, tapered headboard, steel overlay on floor for added strength and longevity (smooth or diamond plate), cranes, tool boxes on top of the bed, HD material rack and many more.
Some samples of what we can do at Enoven:

Get The Machines And Tools To The Jobsite with a Harbor Concrete Saw Body


Here's a  great truck for Concrete Cutting contractors, a 12 foot saw body has plenty of cabinets and is backed up with an Interlift conventional liftgate. It is as functionally effective as it is good looking. Notice the huge locking compartments to keep large saw blades and other gear out of the weather and out of sight.

The liftgate serves two purposes, one being the obvious one to lift the equipment onto the bed area and the other to provide a backstop to secure the equipment in place and prevent it from rolling off the back of the bed!
